The Blanding Boulders have about 50 different established boulder problems in a relatively small area with plenty potential for development. The sandstone is kind of soft but will clean up nicely with a little traffic. Most of the established problems are in the V0-V3 range with a handful of harder problems.
Blanding is located on highway 191, south of Moab. From Blanding, head south on 191 for three miles, then take a right onto highway 95, heading west for about 4.3 miles, you will be heading down a big curvy hill and before reaching the bottom you will take a right (heading north) on Rt. 2201 (dirt road that runs parallel to small ciff band right before mile marker 117) the boulders will be on the right between .15 and .45 miles down the dirt road.

Start on a crimpy rail about eye level, moving up and left to a deep three finger pocket is the coolest and hardest move. Then move up and right through more pockets and easier climbing to the top of this gently overhanging face....[more] Browse More Classics in UT
